What I Ate // Summer Edition : Mango Avocado Salad

As the weekend is just about upon us, I thought nothing better than to share one of my favorite summer recipes with you.  Who doesn't just love fresh produce in the summertime?  Really, the two things just go hand in hand.  This little mango avocado salad is something that I make all summer long and is surely one of the most simple recipes known to man -  definitely not rocket science, if you know what I mean, but a tasty little morsel it is indeed.


What You Need:
2 ripe mangos
1 avocado
1 small red onion
1 jalapeno pepper
A handful of cherry tomatoes
Cilantro (optional)  - I used a small handful - but you can use more or less depending on your taste preferences.
Shredded Coconut
Juice of 1 lime
Honey

How You Make the Magic:
Chop up all your produce and mix together.  Top with shredded coconut.  Squeeze the juice of your lime over the salad and finish off with a drizzle of honey and stir.

I told you it was easy :)

Catch you tomorrow darlings!  
Love Bunches,
